New Year – Fresh Start!

100_4179No, we don’t have any wintry weather to welcome 2017, but it’s nice to imagine a snow globe world while snuggling on a comfy couch with Mr. GearHead, a mug of Burlington hot cocoa and a soft, well-worn quilt.

And that ultimate in list-making …2017 Resolutions! WhooWhee!

So many possibilities, so many hours in a year (8,736, actually), so much to experience, learn, share, enjoy!

Like many of you, most of my 2017 Resolutions come straight from my Bucket List, so I’m impatient to get going! I’m looking forward to sharing my adventures both big and small with each of you here at CreatzArt, and at DiscoveringHome . It will be great fun to post the many recipes I’m sure to gather along the way at Sinclaire Monroe’s Kitchen  – and in the midst of all this activity and creativity, I hope you will choose to share your talents, compassion, and abundance on Jane’s Day of Service next month.

Please stop by – or better yet subscribe/follow so you’ll never miss a post, recipe or special event. There’s always a place for you at the table, on the porch and on snowy days – in front of the fire!

Here’s to a Kind, Healthy, Caring, Inclusive 2017!

New Writers’ Group in TriState Area

Writers are odd folks. The very nature of their craft is one of solitude.

While some pensmiths join the rest of humanity on a caffeinated trek into a well-lit cubicle every morning, many other wordmongers type through a silent night that slips into a lavender and pearl dawn. The process is always the same, however; quiet observation and private inspiration culminates in solitary composition.

Many writers hope to find a community that respects the personal nature of the work, while encouraging real improvement in a supportive environment. The WordWrites Guild is dedicated to meeting those criteria.

From the tentative to the tenacious, all writers are truly welcome. This is the place to join other like-minded souls each month for lively discussions, practical exercises and the often elusive objective critique.

Please join us and lend your interests and talents to this burgeoning group. The first meeting will be held on Thursday, June 16th, at the North Dearborn Public Library from 6:30-7:30.
